Located on the former Naval Base along the Cooper River, Riverfront Park provides river access, an amphitheater, interpretive vistas, an interactive fountain, and space for community events. When designing and engineering this park, Davis & Floyd incorporated sustainable development practices.

After a back-to-back hurricane (Matthew) and tropical storm (Irma) impacted the park, we evaluated and brought it back to its former glory while creating a more maintainable design that prevented recurring damage after weather phenomena.

During the park’s restoration, we recommended replacing the existing electrical system with a flood-resistant design. We focused on stabilization and longevity while surveying the extent of erosion along the shoreline. Additionally, we assisted the city in preparing applications for FEMA and South Carolina Emergency Management Division (SCEMD) reimbursement for funding.

The park has withstood multiple natural disaster events since restoration.
